KO Catering and Pies is the first Australian inspired food business in New England (Outback Steakhouse doesn’t count). This 10-seat shop is brought to you by a pair of Aussies and does sit down, take out, and catering. This food is a must have when you run down to Southie. KO doesn’t just sell traditional appetizing meat and vegetarian pies but a menu pack with mouth-watering meals.
There are five pies- classic beef with cheese, sausage roll, curried vegetable and Irish beef stew. KO also specialize in barbequed grilled seafood, and a variety of healthy, seasonal salads. Grab the Chicken Schnitzel Burger, Spicy Shrimp on the Barbie, or the Grilled Haddock Sandwich. But KO isn’t just open lunch and dinner but try breakfast too with the sweets side of the menu. There are ANZAC cookies, Sticky Date Pudding with vanilla ice cream and butterscotch sauce, or the Lamingtons (an Australian doughnut).

The Sunburnt Cow is a refreshingly different Alphabet City watering hole with a flair for all things Aussie. Attracting an eclectic mix of LES revelers, the Cow lassos a steady following with its rainbow of unique, well priced cocktails like the tangy Wildberry Moo-jito. Friendly ‘tenders from Down Under muddle fresh fruit before your eyes and are liberal with the liquor – giving you an even better bang for your buck. From the same people who brought you Bondi Road on Rivington, the Sunburnt Cow is a fun spot that just happens to serve some very good eats. With a variety of tapas-style Australian offerings, the unexpected bar menu takes on a bistro flair. Kiwi Jalapeno Salsa adds a delicious twist to the tender, Calamari Oz Style, while the Lamb Burger is complemented by a yummy eggplant and sweet onion chutney. Barbie purists will enjoy the tender hanger Steak Sandwich. The Cow also offers an excellent value by way of The Counter Meal. This deal includes an appetizer, choice of entrée, and one of their stellar desserts.
